PlotEedit

Ten years efter the Trade Federation's invasion o Naboo, the Galactic Republic is threatened bi a Separatist movement organized bi umwhile Jedi Master Coont Dooku. Senator Padmé Amidala comes in Coruscant tae vote on a plan tae create an airmy o the Republic tae assist the Jedi against this threat. Narraely avoidin an assassination attempt upon arrival, she is placed unner the pertection o Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi an his apprentice Anakin Skywalker. The twa Jedi thwart anither attempt on her life an subdue the assassin, Zam Wesell, a shape-shifter who is killed bi her boonty hunter client wi a toxic dart afore she can reveal his identity. The Jedi Cooncil assigns Obi-Wan tae identify an captur the boonty hunter, while Anakin is assigned tae escort Padmé back tae Naboo, whaur the twa faw in love.

Obi-Wan's investigation leads him tae the remote ocean planet Kamino, whaur he discovers an airmy o clones is bein produced for the Republic, wi boonty hunter Jango Fett servin as thair genetic template. Obi-Wan deduces Jango tae be the boonty hunter he is seekin, an follaes him an his clone son Boba tae the desert planet Geonosis via a homin beacon placed on their ship, the Slave I. Meanwhile, Anakin acomes troubled bi premoneetions o his mither Shmi in pain, an travels tae Tatooine wi Padmé tae save her. Thay meet Owen Lars, Anakin's stepbrither who is the son o Shmi's new husband Cliegg Lars. Cliegg tells Anakin that Shmi was abductit bi Tusken Raiders weeks earlier an is maist likely dead. Determined tae find her, Anakin venturs oot an finds the Tusken campsite. He discovers too late that his mither haes been torturt bi the tribe. As she dies frae her woonds, Shmi reunites wi Anakin. Anakin kills the Tuskens in his rage an returns tae the Lars homestead wi Shmi's body. Efter revealin his deed tae Padmé, Anakin says that he wants tae prevent daith.

On Geonosis, Obi-Wan discovers a Separatist gatherin led bi Count Dooku, who Obi-Wan learns haed authorized Padmé's assassination an is developin a new battle droid airmy thegither wi Trade Federation Viceroy Nute Gunray. Obi-Wan transmits his findins tae Anakin tae relay tae the Jedi Cooncil, but is capturt mid-transmission. Wi knawledge o the clone airmy, Chancellor Palpatine is votit emergency pouers tae send the clones intae battle. Anakin an Padmé journey tae Geonosis tae rescue Obi-Wan, but are an aa captured. The three are sentenced tae death, but are eventually saved bi a battalion o Jedi an clone troopers led bi Mace Windu an Yoda; Jango is killed bi Mace during the rescue. As the clone an droid airmies battle, Obi-Wan an Anakin intercept Dooku an the three engage in a lichtsaber battle. Dooku wins, injurin Obi-Wan an severing Anakin's right arm, but then Yoda arrives an engages the Coont in a duel. Findin he is unable tae defeat Yoda, Dooku flees. Arrivin at Coruscant, he delivers blueprints for a superweapon tae his Sith master, Darth Sidious, who confirms that everything is gangin well an as planned. As the Jedi gravely acknowledge the beginnin o the Clone Wars, Anakin is fittit wi a robotic airm an secretly marries Padmé on Naboo, wi C-3PO an R2-D2 as thair witnesses.
